NATO leaders held a 90-minute meeting today in response to Turkey’s request for a hearing on the “threats to their territorial integrity,” relating to recent fighting against both ISIS and Kurdish forces. Despite asking for a hearing, Turkey did not request military aid.
NATO did follow through by declaring “solidarity” with Turkey against ISIS, though several countries were said to be unwilling to endorse the attacks against the Kurds, saying they don’t want Turkey to abandon the PKK peace process.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told the NATO members that Turkey is engaging in “self defense” against ISIS and the Kurds, but said NATO should prepare for the possibility of having to get involved and back Turkey in the fights, per the alliance agreement.
The US has been eagerly backing Turkey in its attacks on ISIS, since it secures them some convenient air bases, but the US has also been the most eager in backing the Kurds, meaning they’re going to be struggling to play both sides in that particular battle.

They also indorse Erdogan regimes killing Kurdish people, but before that the Erdogan regimes wants for them to be "disarmed" for Kurdish and Turkish Erdogan regime to resume the peace talks.
Is a wonderful idea, the thing is, would the Turkish Erdogan regime attend the peace talks unarmed?
The histor has shown that such talks is a political old manuscript saying the reason for Erdogan regime killing the Kurdish people is because they are defending themselves, but if they lie down their arms the situation makes it easier for Turkish regime to kill Kurdish people, as always, they can claim that: but they were armed when we killed them, or they were stealing arms to fight, or they were reaching in for the solders gun when they were shoot, is like the American police, they kill people blaming unarmed people for something which justifies their killings which their superior swears on it being true words. The Kurdish life's matters as well as black life as well as Syrian people, Iraqi people, as well as Palestinians people's life should matter.
Of course NATO supports Turkey – otherwise Turkey might just demand that NATO remove its war machines from Incirlik.
